Support Local Dining
Last updated October 1, 2020
During a press conference March 16, Minnesota Governor Tim Walz issued an executive order for all restaurants to close their in-dining options. Restaurants will be able to offer deliveries, drive-through, and take-out. Grocery stores and pharmacies may also remain open. On June 5, an executive order was signed to allow for limited dine-in capacity.
Rochester is a tight-knit community and are there for one another through thick and thin. The RDA is gathering ways of supporting downtown businesses while observing government recommendations and responses to COVID-19/coronavirus. When in-person dining, shopping, or frequenting businesses is not possible, please consult the list below for businesses offering delivery/take-out, gift cards, and/or online services in Rochester.
